Clean chit came too late: Bachchan

By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, April 25 � Expressing happiness over his name being cleared in the 25-year-old Bofors case, megastar Amitabh Bachchan today said the clean chit has come �too late�, reports PTI.

Addressing a press meet here after a former Swedish Police chief, the whistle-blower in the case, gave him a clean chit, the 69-year-old actor said he and his family had to suffer insult for no reason.

�I am happy that at least now I have been declared innocent. However it is sad it came out so late. I wish my parents were alive today to hear about my innocence,� he said.

Bachchan felt this clean chit should have come 25 years back.

In an interview to a website, former Swedish police chief Sten Lindstrom, who led the Bofors probe in his country, alleged Indian investigators probing the scandal had during a trip to Sweden in 1990 �planted the Bachchan angle.�

Quoting the Swedish police, Bachchan said, �The original list submitted by them (Swedish police) did not even include my name in the accused list. It was planted by Indian investigators when they went to Sweden to procure the list.�
